Future growth an opportunity for Kihikihi

A greater demand for housing in Kihikihi could prove lucrative for those able to subdivide.

Waipa District Council expects around 2,300 people to live in Kihikihi by 2050, creating a greater demand for residential sections in the town. 

Council’s planning and regulatory manager, Wayne Allan says there is a significant amount of residential land in Kihikihi that has the potential to be subdivided to create another property. 

“With most towns we look outside of the town boundary to provide land for development, however our draft Waipa Growth Strategy has identified that Kihikihi has enough land within the town boundary to provide for expected growth up to 2050.”

Kihikihi landowners with a section 950m² or larger could be eligible to subdivide.

“We understand subdividing can be confusing so we are committed to helping guide landowners through the process and make it as easy as possible for them,” Allan says.

Two information sessions will be held in Kihikihi, with a presentation from Council consents team leader Gareth Moran about the subdividing process and what you need to do. The sessions will also be attended by Council development engineers and local surveyors who will be available to answer questions following the presentation. 

Council invite any Kihikihi property owners who are interested in subdividing to attend an information session to find out more.
